Over the last several months, the country has watched incredible activism and turnout among Latino voters. It started with Hispanics returning to the Democratic Party and has ended up inspiring cross-generations of Latinos to engage in the Democratic presidential primary.
According to a recent report from the Pew Hispanic Center, Latinos’ share of the Democratic primary vote has risen in 16 of the 19 states that have held elections. This is the most striking in California and Texas. In California, Latino voters made up 30% of the turnout – a 14 point increase from 16% in 2004. And in Texas, Hispanic voters made up 32% of the turnout – an 8 point increase from 24% in 2004. Hillary won the Latino vote decisively in these states, 67 % and 66% respectively.
That’s one of the amazing stories about this election. Hillary’s candidacy is inspiring Latino families to mobilize and make their voices heard. Latinos know what’s at stake in this election, and are standing with the candidate who will best advocate for their families in the White House. And this matters most for the general election, where Hillary receives overwhelming support among Hispanics. This includes key swing states such as Florida, where Hillary receives 67% to McCain’s 30% (Survey USA).
To all Latinos across the country, Hillary thanks you for your support, your vote of confidence, and your involvement. In a video address last September, Hillary said “I encourage all Latinos to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month by getting involved…I hope you will make your voices heard by registering to vote and then helping to bring about the changes that America needs.”
That’s exactly what Latinos have done – and will continue to do.
I encourage you to make phone calls today into Pennsylvania, sign up to travel and volunteer, or make a donation to the campaign through the National Latino Finance Council. But most of all – stay in touch and stay involved!

McCain has opening with Hispanics
By Raul Reyes – USA TODAY
Every Sunday night my family gets together in East L.A. for tamales, enchiladas and a few helpings of political discourse. Recently we had a heated debate on the relative merits of Hillary Clinton vs. Barack Obama.
True to the Latino demographic, nearly all 15 people around the table were for Clinton. My younger cousins and I were the only ones backing Obama. But what if Clinton doesn’t get the nomination, I asked. After a pause, my aunt remarked that then she might consider voting for John McCain. Her comment brought thoughtful nods from the others in the room.
Although Hispanics have been deserting the GOP, McCain is well-positioned to win them back. The Arizona senator risked his standing among conservatives by supporting comprehensive immigration reform. At a GOP debate, he dared to call illegal immigrants “God’s children.” He has reminded audiences that many Hispanic names are on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and that many Hispanics are fighting in Iraq.
McCain’s moderate stance on immigration effectively erases one glaring difference between Republicans and Democrats — meaning that both sides will have to compete for Hispanic votes, but on other issues.
Latino Republicans already have embraced McCain. Throughout the GOP primaries to date, he has won nearly half of the Hispanic vote. He also won in states with significant Latino populations, including Texas, California, Florida and New York. With the right message, he could take on the Democratic nominee while broadening his appeal among Latinos. He is a social conservative who is well-known throughout the Southwest, and if he faces Obama, he could siphon votes from Latinos not excited by the Illinois senator.
To do so, though, he must overcome key obstacles: He does not support universal health coverage or a swift end to the Iraq war, two top Latino concerns. He also faces pressure to adopt a more conservative position on immigration. Unlike Obama, he’s gone wobbly on giving 12 million undocumented workers a pathway to citizenship. His emphasis now: border security.
If anyone is up to reconciling these competing interests, it may be the Maverick. McCain, at the moment, is on the right side of reason, compassion and demographics. His Straight Talk Express is on track to bring Latinos — and a brighter future — to the GOP.

Exit Poll: Critical Clinton Wins – Latinos, Lunch Bucket Voters, Late Deciders Put Clinton on Top March 5, 2008Posted by koreanpower999 in 2008 Elections, Barack Obama, Democratic Party, gender gap, Hillary Clinton, Latino vote, Ohio, Texas.
ABC News – by Gary Langer – March 4, 2008
Latinos, working-class voters, women and late deciders helped Hillary Clinton push back against Barack Obama’s recent winning streak, while some Texas and Ohio Republicans fired a warning shot at John McCain even as he clinched his party’s presidential nomination.
Latinos, Lunch Bucket Voters Put Clinton on Top
The Democratic races in these states were more closely fought, with demographics — more Latinos in Texas, more lunch bucket voters in Ohio — assisting Clinton after her string of losses since Feb. 9.
She also did well with late deciders, winning those who made up their minds in the final few days by 20 points in Ohio and 23 in Texas.
Latinos in Texas accounted for a record 30 percent of voters, up from 24 percent in 2004 — second only this cycle to New Mexico, and matching California — and they backed Clinton by 63-35 percent, crucial to her fortunes.
Obama hit back with 85 percent support from African-Americans, two in 10 Texas voters. And while Clinton won white women in Texas by 19 points, the two candidates split white men evenly.
Ohio was different; there Clinton won white men, a swing group in many Democratic primaries this year, by 59-38 percent.
That partly reflected the working-class nature of the state: Obama won white men who’ve been graduated from college, albeit by narrower-than-usual 51-47 percent; as elsewhere, Clinton won white men who don’t have a college degree, here by a wide 66-31 percent.
And those lacking a college education made up a greater share of white men in Ohio, 61 percent, than in Texas, 49 percent, or all primaries to date, 48 percent.
Familiar Change vs. Experience Theme
While the theme of change continued to resonate in Ohio and Texas, it wasn’t by as wide a margin as in most previous primaries.
The ability to “bring needed change” beat “experience” as the most important quality in a candidate by a 16-point margin in Ohio and by 17 points in Texas, 44-27 percent. Both had among the fewest to pick change as the top attribute in any primary this year.
It mattered, given the correlation of these views and vote preferences.
Obama won “change” voters by more than 2-1 margins in Texas and Ohio alike, while those more concerned with experience went for Clinton almost unanimously in both states.
If a contrast were needed, the two smaller states voting Tuesday, Vermont and Rhode Island, provided it.
Obama won across demographic groups in Vermont, beating Clinton among senior citizens as well as among white women, two of her mainstays.
There his change theme prevailed over experience by more than a 30-point margin, at the high end in primaries to date. In Rhode Island, though, Clinton won easily; there change beat experience by just 10 points, less than anywhere but Arkansas, and late deciders again went heavily to Clinton, by 62-37 percent.
Warning Signs for McCain
McCain lost few groups in Texas, but they were telling ones in terms of his challenges in the Republican base: the most religious and most conservative voters, and those looking mainly for a candidate who shares their values, all backed Mike Huckabee, and the two roughly split evangelicals.
McCain was comparatively weak among those same groups in Ohio. But Texas was tougher to him. There he lost values voters — the top candidate attribute in both states — by a wide 57-32 percent. And in Texas a substantial 45 percent in preliminary exit poll results classified him as “not conservative enough.”
As noted, there were challenges within McCain’s broader victory.
In Texas, Huckabee won those who attend church more than once a week, 29 percent of GOP voters, by 20 points, 56-36 percent. Evangelicals, a hefty 62 percent of Texas Republican voters, split 47-43 percent between Huckabee and McCain. And Huckabee won “very” conservative voters, a third of the electorate, by 8 points.
But McCain came back with broad leads among “somewhat” conservative and moderate Republicans. He won non-evangelicals by a huge margin, 63-21 percent.
He prevailed among less-frequent churchgoers, and won 81 percent of voters focused on the No. 2 attribute, experience. He also beat Huckabee by more than 2-1, 64-27 percent, among senior citizens, compared to an 11-point win among GOP voters younger than 65.
In Ohio McCain did better; he won “very” conservative voters, 51-41 percent.
And McCain came closer to Huckabee than usual among Ohio evangelicals, Huckabee’s mainstay, while winning non-evangelicals by nearly 50 points. But as in Texas, a candidate who “shares my values” was the most important attribute in Ohio, and Huckabee won them there, too, albeit by a closer 48-40 percent.
At 19 percent, African-Americans didn’t increase their turnout in Texas, and it was well down from their 34 percent share in 1984, when Jesse Jackson ran. In Ohio, though, blacks’ 18 percent share was up from 14 percent in 2004; that aided Obama, albeit not enough.
Women increased their turnout in both states — to 59 percent in Ohio and 57 percent in Texas, up from 52 and 53 percent, respectively, in 2004. And Clinton won white women by more than 2-1 in Ohio, as well as by 59-40 percent in Texas.
The upscale/downscale division among white voters was striking. In both states Obama won college-educated white men, while Clinton won those who don’t have degrees. In both states Clinton won college-educated and non-college-educated white women alike, but won less-educated women by broader margins.
As previously there were huge generation gaps.
Clinton again easily won seniors, by 73-24 percent in Ohio and 64-34 percent in Texas, while voters under 30 went for Obama by 20 points in Texas and 26 points in Ohio.
In both states turnout among young voters was up from 2004, by seniors, down.
Seniors accounted for 13 percent of voters in Texas and 14 percent in Ohio, fewer than in most states this year. Interestingly, in Texas Obama came close to Clinton among Latinos under 30, losing them by 5 points in preliminary data, while she swamped him among older Latinos.
Also in both states, Clinton prevailed among mainline Democrats. Obama tied her among independents and Republicans voting in the open Democratic primary in Ohio, and won those groups in preliminary results in Texas.
It’s the Economy…Again
The economy was the top issue in Texas and Ohio alike, and most strikingly so in Ohio, where 59 percent of Democrats ranked it as the single most important issue, second only to Michigan in the importance of the economy to Democratic voters this year.
Almost eight in 10 in Ohio were worried about their family’s finances, 38 percent were “very” worried about it and voters there almost unanimously said the national economy is in bad shape. Slightly fewer in Texas were “very” worried about their own finances, 33 percent.
The exit poll indicated a smaller-than-previous turnout by union voters in Ohio — 35 percent were from union households, down from 44 percent in 2004.
At the same time it also found broad anti-trade sentiment: About eight in 10 said that trade with other countries takes more jobs from Ohio than it creates. Anti-trade sentiment was lower in Texas, with about six in 10 there saying trade takes jobs.
Whatever their candidate preference, Democratic voters had some greater criticism for Clinton than for Obama on negative campaigning — 54 percent in Ohio and 52 percent in Texas said Clinton attacked unfairly, while fewer than four in 10 both states said Obama did.
By about similar margins, however, more said Clinton, rather than Obama, offered “clear and detailed plans” to address the country’s problems.

San Francisco Chronicle – Carla Marinucci – March 3, 2008
(03-03) 04:00 PST Laredo, Texas — Just steps from a bridge that links the United States with its southern neighbor, 22-year-old Jorge Garcia is ready to tackle international trade: He’s just arrived from Mexico in his truck with a load of shoes, T-shirts and other goods to deliver to merchants on the American side of the Rio Grande.
But first, Garcia attends to politics. He grabs his “Texas for Hillary” sign and yells in Spanish to the shoppers crowding the streets of Laredo: “Hillary! Vote for Hillary!”
“She’ll be better for my friends and the immigrants,” said Garcia, also in Spanish, as he unloaded his truck Sunday across the street from U.S. Customs agents examining incoming cars for drugs and contraband.
“She’s a supporter of us. We want to work here. We are here,” he said, motioning to his Mexican crew.
With just hours remaining until Tuesday’s Texas primary, the efforts by Garcia and others to turn up the political heat – and get out the vote – for New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton underscores the critical role of the Latino vote in must-win Texas, a “minority majority” state where Latinos will help determine Clinton’s fate.
Garcia is just one of the tens of thousands of Texas Latinos who straddle the U.S.-Mexico border – sometimes literally in their day-to-day lives but also culturally – in this border city where an estimated 95 percent of all residents claim to have some Latino roots.
He was born in Laredo – and therefore holds American citizenship – but has ties as strong in Mexico. He lives in Nuevo Laredo, the Mexican town across the Rio Grande where he has family and a lower cost of living.
He says he will vote in the Democratic primary Tuesday because he believes Clinton can make the difference – both for the country where he was born and for the one he calls home.
“They need to make it easier for us to get here and work here,” he said. “It will help business.”
Just blocks away, in the historic Plaza de San Augustine, Zafira Serrato de Leon, 44, and her daughter, also named Zafira, were out in the 85-degree sunny Sunday afternoon, waving “Hillary 4 President” signs and distributing literature for the woman they hope will be the next president.
“She’s for amnesty for the immigrants,” said the elder de Leon, a Laredo health care worker who was born in Mexico and has lived in the United States since she was in her teens. “We’ve known her for a long time, and we know her husband. So that is why we’re supporting her.”
“We love Hillary,” said her 12-year-old daughter, wearing her “America con Hillary” button. She says that although she can’t vote yet, she is sure a woman as president “will make a difference.”
A recent poll by Texas A&M University showed Clinton leading Barack Obama by a 3-1 ratio among Latinos in Texas, but her early lead among the whole population has evaporated as the Illinois senator poured resources into the delegate-rich state.
Emphasis on early vote
Clinton’s state campaign manager, Ace Smith, said last week that the campaign’s efforts to get out Latino supporters – in addition to women and older voters, the senator’s most loyal base – during the 11-day early-voting period that ended Friday could well serve as her margin of victory on Tuesday.
While Obama’s Texas effort has been bolstered by support from young voters, African Americans and the college-educated, his team says it is not ceding Latinos to Clinton. Obama is outspending Clinton 2 to 1 on the air in Texas, with a substantial presence on Spanish-speaking television.
Texas will award 228 delegates of the 444 up for grabs on Tuesday, a day when Ohio, Vermont and Rhode Island also hold primaries. Polls show Clinton is tied with Obama in Texas, while she holds a slim lead in Ohio and Rhode Island; Obama leads by a wide margin in Vermont.
The latest Associated Press count shows that Obama leads Clinton by 109 delegates, 1,385 to 1,276, with 2,025 needed for the nomination.
Both candidates were campaigning in Ohio on Sunday, relying on California Latino political leaders to carry their messages in Texas over the weekend.
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has been crisscrossing the state for Clinton, as has Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez and Dolores Huerta, the iconic co-founder of the United Farm Workers.
State Sen. Gil Cedillo of Los Angeles, who has gained fame as a leading proponent of issuing driver’s licenses for undocumented immigrants, was in the Lone Star State this weekend working the grassroots and Spanish media for Obama. The Illinois senator, in a move hailed by Cedillo, announced he supports driver’s licenses for those without immigration documents – a position popular with Latino voters, but not with the electorate as a whole.
“There’s no question that it’s controversial – and not the most popular issue” among some of the past presidential candidates and GOP conservatives, Cedillo acknowledged.
But he noted that Republicans look likely to nominate Arizona Sen. John McCain, a supporter of immigration reform. “So I don’t think that in (the general) election … this is a wedge issue that the Republicans want to make of it,” Cedillo said.
And Cedillo said Clinton’s hold on the Latino vote is weakening as more ethnic voters get to know Obama and understand he shares their values and experiences.
“There’s so many aspects of his life that are uniquely America,” Cedillo said. “As the son of an immigrant, this man has really tried to construct a way in which every American can participate in their democracy.”
Not all agree.
Jose Martinez, 39, born in the United States and working as a Laredo store clerk, echoes the concerns of many when he says that Tuesday’s vote will be crucial on many fronts: the U.S. economy, immigration policy and the family budget concerns of workers like himself who see themselves as both American and Mexican.
“The economy is bad. The workers don’t earn enough here,” said Martinez, who, like Garcia, lives on the Mexican side of the border. “And President Clinton was better for the economy. So I think for Mexicans, and Mexican Americans, the best will be Hillary. If she’s there, she will raise the economy again.”
Still, Lorenzo Herrera y Lozano, 28, an Austin community activist with ARGO, a statewide organization for gays and lesbians of color, warned that the Latino vote in Texas is far from monolithic.
Herrera y Lozano – a California transplant who is earning his master’s degree at St. Edward’s College in Austin – said he’s found disagreement and dissention among Latinos on the election, even within the tightly knit community of gay and lesbian activists.
“There’s almost this narrative that if you want to vote as LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender), you’re Clinton,” he said. “If you’re a person of color you’re Obama. And if you’re both, what do you do?”
He said he went to a lively dinner last week, only to watch the attendees split right down the middle on their preferences – still arguing over the pros and cons of the candidates with just days to the vote.
“The progressive pro-feminist ideologues want to go the Clinton route. But the anti-racism ideology wants to go Obama,” he said. “As much as people talk about it being not a gender and race-based race, it has come down to that in some ways.”
For Latinos from every background here, he said, “there are no gut wrenching differences between the two – so it makes it hard.”

There has been some scoffing at Clinton pollster Mark Penn’s memo issued yesterday arguing that Hillary Clinton can still win more delegates than Barack Obama. The memo contains a certain amount of campaign boilerplate:
Hillary is the only candidate who can deliver the economic change voters want—the only candidate with a real plan and a record of fighting for health care, housing, job creation and protecting Social Security.
But, hey, he’s paid (and very well) to say things like this. And there’s independent polling data that seem to support his argument.
Start with Pennsylvania, which votes April 22. Quinnipiac today released a poll showing Clinton leading Obama there 52 to 36 percent. Whites back Clinton 58 to 31; blacks back Obama 71 to 10. Since Pennsylvania’s population is only 10 percent black, that accounts for Clinton’s big lead.
Then look at Ohio, which votes March 4. Here Quinnipiac shows Clinton ahead 55 to 34 percent. Whites back Clinton 64 to 28; blacks back Obama 64 to 17. Ohio’s population is 11 percent black. Quinnipiac’s Peter Brown (whom veterans of the campaign trail will remember as a first-rate reporter) explains why Clinton seems to be doing so well in Ohio (and, by implication, demographically similar Pennsylvania) after losing eight straight contests:
Ohio is as good a demographic fit for Sen. Clinton as she will find. It is blue-collar America, with a smaller percentage of both Democrats with college educations and African-Americans than in many other states where Sen. Obama has carried the day. If Clinton can’t win the primary there, it is very difficult to see how she stops Obama.
Quinnipiac’s result is similar to two other recent Ohio polls. Rasmussen has Clinton ahead 51 to 37 percent; SurveyUSA has her ahead 56 to 39 percent. The only Ohio poll taken in January, by the Columbus Dispatch, showed Clinton ahead of Obama 42 to 19 percent. Obama has apparently made gains since then. But so has Clinton.
In the other big state that votes March 4, Texas, it seems that there has been no public poll since last April(!). Texas’s population is 12 percent black and 32 percent Hispanic, so we can expect the Democratic primary electorate there to be about 20 percent black and perhaps 15 to 20 percent Hispanic.
One primary Penn did not stress in his memo was Wisconsin. The Clinton campaign line has been that the post-Super Tuesday February contests are all dismal ground for their candidates. But the Wisconsin polling data tell a different story. Scott Rasmussen shows Obama leading Clinton by only 47 to 43 percent. This is similar to Strategic Vision’s Wisconsin survey, which shows Obama ahead 45 to 41 percent. Wisconsin’s population is 6 percent black and 3 percent Hispanic.
How can Clinton be doing so much better here than she did in Maryland and Virginia? One reason is that there are smaller percentages of black voters in these states. Another, probably more important, reason is that the white Democratic primary voters are different. In Maryland and Virginia, they tended to be quite upscale and on the young side, especially in the big suburban counties outside Washington, D.C. In Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, they’re much more downscale. At a time when Clinton and Obama are essentially tied in national polls, it stands to reason that if Obama is ahead in states like Maryland and Virginia, Clinton will be ahead in Wisconsin, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Texas is another, interesting story. Texas doesn’t have party registration, and, historically, huge numbers of white voters participated in the state’s Democratic presidential primary—1.3 million in 1980, 1.8 million in 1988, 1.5 million in 1992. That number plunged downward to 786,000 in 2000 and 839,000 in 2004, even though the state’s population grew from 14 million in 1980 to 22 million in 2004. The obvious conclusion: An awful lot of white Texans began voting in the Republican primary again. This year’s Texas Democratic primary could turn out to be largely a battle of minorities, with blacks voting heavily for Obama and Latinos, as in most other states so far, heavily for Clinton. In this battle Obama will undoubtedly have an organizational advantage, both because his campaign— unlike hers— has done organizational work in the post-Super Tuesday states and because of the strength of pre-existing black turnout organizations. As for white Democratic primary voters, upscale Texans still tend to be heavily Republican, though a little less so than 15 or 20 years ago—very much contrary to the pattern in Northern Virginia and Montgomery County, Md. White downscale voters in southern states have generally gone for Clinton, but not by overwhelming margins. Of the four states we’ve looked at here, Texas appears the most problematic for Clinton, though she’s on far stronger ground there than in the already concluded post-Super Tuesday contests.

Exit polls show that Latinos, Asian Americans, and women give Hillary Clinton a decisive victory in California over Barack Obama February 6, 2008Posted by koreanpower999 in 2008 Elections, 80-20, Asian American, Asian Americans for Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Democratic Party, feminism, gender, gender gap, Hillary Clinton, Latino vote, race, Super Tuesday, Uncategorized, women's vote.
If you look at the MSNBC exit polls from the California Democratic primary, it shows a sharp racial and gender divide.
It’s apparent that there was a huge gender gap as women came out in large numbers for Hillary Clinton over Barack Obama. Clinton beat Obama among women 59%-34%. White women were heavily tilted toward Hillary Clinton (55%-34%) whereas white men heavily favored Barack Obama (52%-34%).
This is what CNN said about how Hillary Clinton won California:
“(CNN) – Sen. Hillary Clinton can thank Latino and Asian voters for her projected victory in California. Early exit polls indicate that Sen. Barack Obama carried white voters in California because of his overwhelming support among white men. White women, as in other states, more often supported Clinton. Black voters overwhelmingly favored Obama but Asian voters, whose numbers are comparable to blacks, went overwhelmingly for Clinton. The deciding factor may have been Latinos, who make up roughly 30 percent of California’s Democratic vote. They went for Clinton by a two-to-one margin.”
If you look at the white vote, it was surprisingly even with Clinton with 45% and Obama with 42%. As expected though, the black vote went overwhelmingly for Obama 78% to 19%. However, unlike in southern states where the black vote made up 45%-55% of the total Democratic primary electorate, the black vote only made up 6% of the total Democratic primary electorate in California. What made the difference for Clinton’s big victory in California was that she crushed Obama with the Latino vote which she won handily 69% to 29%. Latinos made up 29% of the Democratic primary electorate in California. The other group that put Clinton over the top was Asian Americans. Asian Americans made up 8% of the Democratic primary electorate in California and Clinton clobbered Obama among Asian American voters by an overwhelming margin of 75% to 23%. (I wonder how much 80-20′s endorsement of Hillary Clinton in the California Democratic primary influenced Clinton’s 52% advantage over Obama in the Asian American vote?)
